Conceived by Carroll Shelby in conjunction with Ford Motor Company in 1965, the Shelby GT 350 became synonymous with the rush of American performance that dominated the 1960s. Backed by a powerful high-revving engine, rear wheel drive, and race-bred suspension, a Shelby GT 350 purchased on Friday could hit the track on Saturday, rest on Sunday, and then drive to work on Monday. A few years after introduction ‘ole Shel had another trick up his sleeve and released the GT500. This ground pounder would become the prevailing Shelby performance icon. Returning to the same goals of durability, superb performance, and fantastic handling were a big part of the Shelby offering when the GT500 was announced in 2020. At the heart of this performance car, the 5.2 Liter supercharged engine utilized a cross-plane crankshaft which developed a staggering 760hp. Coupled to a robust Tremec 7-speed dual clutch manual transmission and Torsen differential with 3.73 rear axle ratio, the GT500 delivered astonishing performance. Brembo brakes with two-piece vented rotors offered fantastic stopping power, while MagnaRide damping and weight reduction measures contributed to a lightweight high performance car capable of usable street power and dominant track capability.
History of This Car
This car was purchased by the consigning owner brand new from Marin County Ford, Marin, CA. Delivered to the dealer on October 9, 2020, the new owner took possession with just 14 delivery miles. Shortly after delivery, the car was treated to ResistAll NG2 paint and appearance protection, including fabric protection, and leather/vinyl protection, with 7 years protection renewable for life. Mechanical service includes an oil change and 5k schedule maintenance, performed at the selling dealership with 3,975 miles indicated, October 6, 2021. Today just 4,916 original documented miles are indicated, also confirmed by the recent Carfax.
As shown on a copy of the window sticker, this GT500 is optioned with the “Golden Ticket” Carbon Fiber Track Pack, an $18,500 option package. The car is also optioned with the Technology Package, a $3,0000 option. The Track Pack includes carbon fiber rear wing, carbon fiber trim, Recaro leather trimmed seats, wheel locking kit, and carbon fiber wheels with 305 front and 315 rear 30R20 performance tires. The car was also outfitted with “over the top” Kona Blue vinyl stripes ($1,000 option). The Technology package includes B&O 12 speaker sound system, BLIS w/cross traffic alert, and voice activated touchscreen navigation system.
Today this powerful performance Shelby presents in excellent condition finished in Oxford White with full length “over the top” twin Kona Blue body stripes and Carbon Fiber track package, all of which deliver a powerful presence to the already amazing GT500 package. The finish is in excellent condition throughout with no notable marks or damage to the front fascia, hood, and fenders. The car has been treated to paint protection which was applied when delivered new. All glass, clear front and rear lenses, and exterior body trim are in excellent cosmetic condition including the massive grille opening, rear diffusers, and unique Carbon Fiber rear spoiler. All openings function as new, with excellent closure, factory panel gaps, and crisp fit to the front and rear bumper caps. All Shelby logos and trim are in place and in excellent condition. The 20” Carbon Fiber wheels are in excellent condition with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires mounted and Brembo brakes over two-piece cross drilled disc brakes at all four corners. Quad exhaust exits from each rear end corner, flanking the rear air diffuser with trailing blue stripes continuing down the rear of the car much like so many other historically important Le Mans and other racing Shelbys.
The interior features black leather with gray trim, Recaro seats, and carbon fiber dash accents. All finishes are essentially new throughout including the dashboard, headliner, carpet, and steering wheel. All interior components have been beautifully maintained including smooth and supple leather trimmed seats, excellent light-color accent stitching, multi-gauge dashboard, touch screen, and B&O sound system. The passenger side dashboard contains the emblem “Shelby GT 500 Chassis – L34977” which is also noted on the Ford Performance certificate accompanying the car. As is the case with this series, the rear seat has been removed as a weight savings measure. The trunk retains factory lining and a portable air compressor for emergency tire use, located under the removable floor panel.
Under the hood, the powerful 5.2 Liter Supercharged cross-plane crank V8 offers incredible yet reliable performance. The engine has been meticulously maintained both mechanically and cosmetically, showing proper care and detailing further validating the low original miles. The lightweight carbon fiber construction forward radiator housing, unique to these cars, operates as a molded structural air channel system, feeding the powerful 760hp engine with much needed air for proper combustion. Every factory component, trim piece, and manufacturer’s engine compartment sticker remains in place in excellent cosmetic condition. The undercarriage of the car further supports the documented low miles showing no significant road marks on the factory aerodynamic chassis pans and no visual evidence of structural compromise to the chassis pan or suspension mounting points. Suspension and various exposed components revealed in the underside are also in excellent condition, displaying a clean and fresh appearance. Many of the undercarriage stickers and factory assembly paint marks are still in place.
Driving this Shelby, one is immediately reminded of how much performance engineering has advanced since the first GT500 was delivered in the late 1960s. Power from the cross-plane crank engine is jaw-dropping with seemingly no limit to the engine powerband. Not only does power come on strong, the fantastic brakes and incredible handling make this package one of the most potent assembled for street use. Further still, the astonishing on-demand performance is perfectly at home while idling through city traffic or modestly cruising at highway speeds. Even Shelby himself would have grinned ear to ear with this much power readily on tap. At the flick of the wrist as the pedal drops, you surge forward, revs climbing, as you’re pressed into your seat, while objects quickly vanish in the rear-view mirror. All this power is light years ahead of former muscle cars offering refreshing AC, easy to use controls, an enjoyable sound system, and the added pleasure of knowing you are driving one of the best and most enduring performance cars of legendary motorsports history.
